I have been very tempted to buy a Microsoft band, the review I see on the heart rate accuracy for most wearable is disappointing though. I would want it to have a decent calories burned estimate but I want the estimated done on heart rate, not pedometer, so the heart rate accuracy is crucial.

I use a tomtom multisport cardio when training and it uses optical heart rate monitoring and it is fairly accurate so when a proper wearable arrives that can match the tomtom in accuracy I will probably pic it up.

I am far more interested in bar tracking gadgets though, stuff one can put on the bar and get velocity curves, that would be great for estimating fatigue etc without needing to go heavy. They are all rather pricey still though.
